This is a nice piazza with a lovely park nearby. There is an obelisk with a fountain where you can relax and people watch. There are also lots of restaurants and cafes in the area.

Yet another Piazza in Rome. Free to walk around (centre is pedestrianised). Lots of cafes and restaurants to pick up refreshments. Often has some activities in the afternoon - street entertainers.

Yes, just ask your host for the closest one. There is a Valeri Alimentari and further away a Carrefour Express for example.

Most of the tours start around Colosseo. You can reach Termini metro station by express, regional train or bus from airport. Booking around Termini metro station would be sensible.
